Now why should this be? Wk7R1 last Friday went really well; so much so that I was able to add a minute or 2 extra on the end, (and felt very smug about it!). Run 2 on Monday, seemed a bit tougher, but I put that down to me choosing a different route, and I used the podcast instead of lovely MJ. It was ok, but all seemed a bit longer. However, run 3 today was a real struggle. I'd gone back to lovely route/Mr Smooth/decent music etc, but it was a slog this morning. For the first time ever, I honestly thought I was going to have to stop. I didn't, but calves ached, breathing was more difficult than usual, and the end couldn't come soon enough! ☹️. Why - when the 3 runs were all the same??
